Joining a sorority. - July 3rd 2015, 01:20 AM

Sooo, I was strongly considering joining a sorority on campus.

The one I was mostly thinking of was Delta Phi Epsilon. I know a lot of girls in that sorority already, because I see them practically everywhere, and most of the people I know from the sorority I am friendly with or getting close to.

I was talking to one of my coworkers in the car today about considering that, and he mentioned how his daughter's friend was in a sorority. So he called his daughter to see which, and it was Omega Zeta Pi. His daughter said that this sorority has the most down to earth group of people who don't want too much out of you, and my coworker said if her friend was in it, it means the people in it must be nice because her friend is an overly nice person. A pretty nice girl in some of my classes is also a member.

He also said that since his daughter's friend is an active alumni of Omega Zeta Pi, he can make a call and see if he can help me get in.

How do I decide which to go with? How does rushing work? Am I able to express interest in both of them and see which one wants me?

But then what if both want me?

Hey Dez,

How is your search for sororities going?

Sorry you haven't had any replies. I'm mainly replying to bump the thread for you, seeing as I can't give much advice as we don't have sororities here in the UK

From what I read online, rushing may differ between schools. It usually involves a few rounds of meeting and talking to the sisters. I think it's ok to express interest in more than one sorority. As for which one to go with, I'd say that's entirely up to you. Don't let anyone pressurise you into specific ones, just go with the one that interests you the most and that you feel comfortable with!

I hope that someone can provide you with more specific advice! I'm sure that whatever sorority you join, they will be very lucky to have you

Take care

Hey there!

I personally don't have any experience with sororities (not in university yet), but I do know about them from word of mouth.

To my knowledge, it is perfectly fine for you to express an interest in more than one house during rushing or pledge week, as it is sometimes called. Many people do this, and you generally only need to make your decision at the end, when the houses make their decisions on who they want and do not want.

Hope this helped!

Kyra

I think a lot of sororities have websites (or Facebook pages) so you can probably look up the various ones at your school and see which ones are the best for you.

Yeah, the one I've always considered is Delta Phi Epsilon. I know many girls from this one and they're all pretty nice. They also seem really active.

But then I hear how Omega Zeta Pi is so down to earth and nice.
